Inventory
« on: November 07, 2021, 12:11:24 AM »
my 3 month plan is very good for meat...But not so good for veggies. I need more cans.

I have dried veggies from Amazon for Vegetable soup. one package. All I have to do is reconstitute them and they are good for a lot more than soup.
I have two packages of dried hominy...

all nice but I need more for balanced meals. I don't eat a lot of canned veggies. I have green beans and hominy.

So what canned veggies do you eat? I don't want to stock something I won't like.
How was the fresh produce during the last scare in 2020?

I do my level best to avoid canned vegetables at all - except beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, etc.

We've got pretty good capacity on frozen goods storage, so we have no shortage of frozen veggies.

I remember the Covid crap from 2020 and the stupid panic-buying that people were doing of TP and hand sanitizer. Cleaning agents too were in short supply.

canned: vegetable soup, beets, corn, carrots, green beans.  I don't like canned corn and carrots but you need a little diversity.  The right spices can make almost anything taste good.

freeze dried: cauliflower rice.  It's actually as good or better than real rice.

meat: canned sardines, tuna, salmon.

Mrs. E and I have an African grey parrot. Parrot diets are notorious for their adhesion to fresh fruits, vegetables, and plant protein. For example, we prepare and freeze what we call "perch mix". It consists of:
- eggshells (females need the calcium for egg production if they're laying -- ours is not)
- cinnamon stick
- field corn (we buy it in the bag at Tractor Supply and keep it in the freezer -- trust me, you DON'T want to keep that stuff in your larder without freezing it. You'll have all kinds of insects everywhere).
- Navy beans
- Black-eyed peas
- Split peas
- Rice
- Sweet potato (fresh)
- Oatmeal (the real stuff, not that instant crap)
- Fine pasta, like angel hair
- Raisins
- Frozen peas

We make up a batch and it lasts one bird about a month. We mix that with pulse-chopped fresh veggies (gotta make this about 2x per week) that consists of:

- Kale
- Fresh carrot
- Fresh zucchini
- Fresh yellow squash
- Fresh chopped apple (no seeds - they contain a minute amount of cyanide)
- Fresh sweet peppers
- whatever else we might have on hand that's fresh

 (We've fostered as many as 4 birds at one time.) In addition to all that, we make a sweet potato "snack" which consists of:

- Sweet potato (2 large)
- 2 bananas
- 2 cups of frozen mixed veggies
- 2 cups of granola or other type of cereal

These get set out in balls and frozen and she gets one every other day, along with 2 unsalted unshelled almonds.

I point this out to illustrate that keeping a food larder ain't real easy for some folks.

Oh, the vet says after a recent exam that she's one healthy bird!  :lmao:

We are heavy on canned vegetables and soups. To add bulk to our supply we pick up veg cans at wally world. I need to look into freezed dried supplies, I'm kind of new to this and prone to making mistakes.

just a warning, Freeze Dried is almost twice as expensive as it was a month ago.

It has been now I think the last 6 weeks that on Monday evenings I head over to walmart and buy just prepper things. Between walmart and Aldi those are local and easy to get to. I have memberships with Sams Club and Costco but they are inconvenient.

Aldi is a good choice for canned meats, tuna, pasta sauce and condiments. Walmart is good for canned fruits and veg. A great medium term storage item are the Knorr rice and pasta sides which costs $1.00 ea.

I'm looking into dry canning rice I want to have about 200 pounds in the bunker. Every time I hit a warehouse goal I up the ante.

I focused on rice as well. It has an advantage over flour. when you cook it there is no, "Come and get it!" smell like bread makes.
